Note that some content may still need to be updated.

D4Dwarf.png This article or section has been rated D for Dwarf. It may include witty humour, not-so-witty humour, bad humour, in-jokes, pop culture references, and references to the Bay12 forums. Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Dukes are aggressive military commanders, but not fond of taking casualties; if a goblin siege or a megabeast shows up, they'll be happiest if you skip dwarf-to-dwarf combat and nuke 'em. Keep them well supplied with chewing gum, and far away from your fort's donkeys.
